Mont Saint Michel - A Castle in Mid-Sea!

No, these aren’t scenes from Lord of the Rings though this castle looks like it was taken straight out of a childhood fairy-tale or a fantasy novel! This is a rocky tidal island Mont Saint Michel located in France. The first establishment was constructed here in 709.

Mont Saint Michel

 The diameter of this island is almost 1 km (0.62 miles). It is elevated at 92m (300 feet)  above sea level.
